A Moment for the Holidays
By Joe Ulm 

“…enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.”

― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

For many of us, Christmas is an incredibly busy time. All those wonderful traditions and thoughtful gifts take a ton of work. Who knew? Oh yeah, that’s right, every parent – that’s who. And let’s not forget about everything that needs to be done to prepare the house for guests. After all, “clean” is only a relative term on normal days – not holidays 😊. Yet, for all the effort we put into the holidays, they can pass us by in a blur, leaving us with few memories and little enjoyment if we’re not careful. More concerning, however, is how this type of hustle can often feel like the norm, not the exception. Although this experience is different for each of us, it’s something I’m all too familiar with myself. 

So, it’s with this in mind that I encourage you to take a moment and look around; breathe it all in, enjoy. Because it’s not the clean house or the perfect gift that makes the holidays so special. It’s the time we spend together. And just maybe… this special time we spend together is what keeps us united.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

street soccer

In our Street Soccer program, players have the opportunity to create their own teams, make their own calls, and unconsciously develop their technical and tactical awareness–all while expressing themselves with the ball at their feet. We believe players should be able to manage themselves and have the freedom to play, interact, problem-solve, innovate, and take ownership of their participation in the game. Teams are created the day of to promote diversity, and games are played without referees to reinforce positive conflict resolution techniques. Our I-Mentor coaches will supervise each field making sure that players and facilities are safe while maintaining a fun and challenging environment.

PSU’s Street Soccer is open to all 9U to 19U players. Our Old School Street Soccer is open to any parent, soccer coach, and their significant others. Bring the whole family!
